We are going to start a new batch (i.e on weekend & sunday classes) for students from March 15th. This will be effect only for B.tech-CSE,IT / Bsc Computers / MCA / MBA-IT. And this will be useful at the time of your placements drive.
Learn To Code In 2018, Get Hired, And Have Fun Along The Way.
Before we get into the steps you can take to become a developer, we must first dive into why you would want to go down this path. Every decision that will require significant time of your life should be justified:
a. You want to be working in an industry where there is a high demand for the skill and many possibilities to be in highly important roles at the top of the food chain.
b. You love being location independent. You want a skill that allows you to go anywhere in the world and still be able to find a job easily. If you decide to move to Iceland tomorrow, you want to make sure that you won’t have issues finding a job.
c. You think change is good, and learning should never stop. So why not do something new?
d. You’ve noticed the difference between 2002 and 2017 and how much of a technological progress we have made in those short 15 years. You want to be at the forefront of an industry that is impacting the world.
But I don’t have a computer science degree and I don’t even know how the internet works! Don’t worry, we will use that to your advantage. Keep reading…
When choosing a new career path here are some good must/nice to-haves:
1. It must be relevant for the next 10+ years. This skill should be valued many years in the future guaranteeing you security.
2. Demand for people with this skill must be higher than the supply. The less available pool of skilled workers in the industry, the more control you can have over your job and companies you work for.
3. Ability to have a high salary regardless of years in the industry. You don’t want to spend many years climbing the corporate ladder until you make a decent living.
4. An industry that doesn’t require a specialized degree from a university. You don’t want to spend the next 4 years getting in debt and going to a graduate program before you start making money.
5. Ability to catch up to the top performers in the industry in the shortest amount of time. Can little experience still get you employed? And can you close the gap as fast as possible to be considered a senior or an expert in the field?
6. Have fun. The most important one. Can you see yourself doing this 40 hours a week for a long time?
Coding hits every one of the points above in my experience. You want to evaluate this yourself and see if it is something that is right for you.
IMPORTANT POINT READ IT: keep in mind that the first 2 months will feel like you are climbing an insurmountable mountain. Every tutorial, course or lesson you do will make you feel like you are the only person in the world that doesn’t know this stuff. Stay strong. You will get there and you will have more and more ‘AHA!’ moments as time progresses. We call this the Impostor’s Syndrome: where you feel like you are the only one who doesn’t know this information and you are surrounded by self-doubt. Rest assured we all feel this way when we learn something new.
We wish you all the best…
